I saw this beautiful bracelet on Pinterest…
and of course wanted to make one for myself!
Or make several for that matter! So naturally, I would not follow the exact design,
but make something much different!
This was the first one I made…I used vintage buttons in blues and some new clamshell round buttons in a teal shade and a light blue shade(thank you JoAnns!)
And then there is this bracelet with the stamped words…imagine, strength, passion, integrity, focus. I have had these rings for a while, just waiting for the perfect project.
And lastly, one that is made entirely of natural clamshell buttons (rectangles and three sizes of round buttons) and a few off center clamshell beads. The base bracelet is a smaller more delicate chain. Anyway, I have not yet finished! I have lots more ideas for these bracelets…hmmm, thinking Christmas presents?
I am linking to these great parties!
These are adorable! I've been wanting to make one for quite some time. You have inspired me! We have entries next to each other at Very Merry Vintage!
Um. I like yours better than the inspiration photo. Can I say that? I just did! They're awesome!
I love these! Especially the last one, maybe I can be added to your Christmas list? hee hee
I absolutely LOVE these. I totally want that seriously turquoise one. Do you sell them off the blog here?? Thanks for sharing.
love these!!! great idea!
Great idea! i love buttons,!!
I am obsessed with buttons and these are such a lovely way of displaying them!
Yours turned out darling!
Love this! When my Grandma died (almost 20 years ago!) I was the only granddaughter that did any sewing/crafting. She never had much but she saved every little scrap of anything. She gave it all to me with a tin full of buttons! I have hung onto them until I could think of something to do with them. This is perfect! Thanks for sharing :)
What an adorable idea for my most recent button hoarding obsession! Love this!
fantastic idea for using our stash of buttons...
I will be honored if you will add this project in our weekly linking party every Wednesdays at

Really like your bracelets! So pretty, you have made beautiful jewelry! :)
I nearly cried when I saw your beautiful button bracelet! When my grandmother passed a little over a year ago, I inherited her small basket of buttons (I remember playing endlessly with these as a small girl). Now I can take some of those precious buttons and make them into a bracelet to remember her by! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
So cute! I love the sea-shell bracelet. The buttons are a wonderful idea for a bracelet! Love it.
